Motivational Power Quote


Success is Based on Using All of our Tools


"Some defeats are only installments to Victory."

Jacob A. Riis, Danish Journalist   


As I see it. . . . . . . .

Success is based on using all of our tools  

To achieve success we have to use all of our tools.  

One tool that's makes a difference is the ability to learn and comeback for defeats and setbacks. 

In the dark moments in our life we can allow our defeats and setbacks control our life and thinking and give up. 

Winners look at defeats and setbacks as temporary condition and the price of admission for our success journey. Winners will focus on the solution and not the problem.  

Winners see defeats and setbacks as a learning experience and will grow as a result.

Good motivational post, Lou.  You can't get a job well done with only half the equipment.

One good tool is a great thing to have, but it usually takes a set of tools to truly get the job done right my friend.

Hi Lou,  I realized a long time ago that I usually learn more from a defeat than from a win !

Hi Lou, this is a great quote, most winners have made quite a few installments on their road to victory.   Defeat is a great teacher.
